“These niche programmes are aimed at internationalisation of the IIT Madras campus, introducing students to a diversity of thoughts and cultures, which will serve them well when they compete in a global marketplace,” V Kamakoti, Director, IIT Madras, said.
In addition to core and elective courses in various disciplines, international students will take up courses in Indian culture and basic research skills. The program’s second year will be dedicated to a research-based master’s thesis.
International students from any engineering background can apply for the two-year-long master’s programmes, and those with outstanding records will be provided scholarships.
The last date to apply for the course is March 31, 2022.
